3Squared at rail tech event Railtex 2023

3Squared at Railtex 2023

We recently attended Railtex –  the UK’s International rail industry exhibition event which sees suppliers and manufacturers from across the rail supply chain come together to showcase the latest advancements in rail tech. As well as exhibiting and demonstrating our flagship product RailSmart, we were also able to attend some of the insightful talks and presentations that took place. We caught up with 3Squared team members, Graham and Jason, to find out their thoughts on the event.

What was your highlight from Railtex 2023?

“The Future Focus Conference – International session with David Fisken, Investment Director at Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) was really informative.

He shared that with a A$155 billion rail investment pipeline over the next 15 years, it’s a great time for UK rail businesses to be looking at opportunities in Australia.

I have already connected on LinkedIn and will be following up with a few questions.” – Jason Greig, Sales and Account Manager

“The opportunity to meet clients, prospects and colleagues and friends in the rail industry – from government organisations, rail professional associations and the press.  All round, a good opportunity to catch up, discuss trends and issues – especially, given the name of the show, about technology driving rail modernisation” – Graham Cooper, Head of Product and Marketing


What was the most interesting thing you learnt at the event? 

“I wasn’t aware that there was so much support available for overseas trade – very interesting to hear and we will certainly be exploring these options.” – Jason Greig


“Our meeting with Milda Manomaityte from the Rail Industry Association (RIA) to discuss data driven rail systems improvement was brilliant.  As a result, I’ve since had a very interesting follow up conversation with colleagues at the Rail Delivery Group to discuss how the Rail Data Marketplace will help solutions developers like 3Squared build better, more relevant products with the potential to further drive digital transformation in rail.” – Graham Cooper

Did you attend Railtex with an aim in mind?

“Yes – my goal was to meet some interesting people and interesting businesses and learn more about what the future of rail technology looks like.” – Graham Cooper


What is your key takeaway from the event?

“That there is no shortage of appetite for the use of technology to improve outcomes for passengers and for freight businesses and operators seeking and deliver more modern, efficient rail processes. A combination of policy initiatives, innovative businesses and passionate people are all pushing towards a brighter future for rail and the role technology can play in delivering that.” – Graham Cooper


All in all, Railtex provided some fruitful conversations with fellow rail peers, and the team came back armed with valuable insights on what the future holds for rail technology. Bring on the next Railtex!
